Abstract:
Poster Presentation: The Journey to Magnet follows many paths. Our hospital's journey began in 1981 when we were selected as one of the original 41 hospitals designated to serve as a "magnet" for professional nurses. We had a good reputation for recruitment and retention of professional nurses and were able to create a work environment that nurses found both professionally and personally rewarding. Like many large hospitals and hospital systems, during the 1990?s our organization undertook numerous initiatives designed to create and/or strengthen clinical programs that enhance services to the patients and communities that we served. At the same time, efforts were taken to strengthen our clinical capabilities and to provide the highest possible quality of patient care. Twenty years after being designated as one of the original "magnet" hospitals we re-focused on what it meant to have the designation of "magnet". Our "mission to magnet" guided by the 14 Forces, re-focused and put our facility in the forefront of healthcare in our region of the country. The purpose of this presentation is to make the "Business case for Magnet" and share our "Magnet Makeover". Although our facility had a very good reputation for being a healthcare organization that valued nursing we had grown and doubled in size. Between 1993 and 2003, we grew from having 8,000 physicians and employees with annual revenues of $400 million into a healthcare system of eight wholly owned hospitals and four partnership hospitals with more than 20,000 physicians and employees, and annual revenues of almost $2 billion. This type of growth requires an organization to evaluate and identify processes that meet the organization's goals and needs. In 2001 in the midst of the nursing shortage, our organization was experiencing a 34 % RN vacancy rate with high agency expense. Nursing satisfaction was low and nursing staff reported feeling "unappreciated and burned out". We re-focused on magnet and the journey began again. [Please contact presenter for more information.]
